this one looks like a good one. Haven't heard any of it. But from everything david and company put into the releases... These shows have to be top notch. And what a cool cover I might add!

Nice enough show, pretty tight and energetic and sound quality is already strong relative to a lot of early 80s boards, which is probably why they picked it. Not much jamming of note compared to some of the 82 shows I find more interesting. No real complaints, but even for the early 80s era, there are shows that go a lot further "out there." Maybe I should be thankful that in general a lot of the weird, gnarly moments are saved for discovery by voyagers through the archive.

Where's the "Bob Star"?

I'm no 80's aficionado and I went to these shows and have no particular memory of them,Blair Jackson's inane blathering aside 4/6 seems to be the lesser of the two shows.The first set features a very nice Brown Eyed,the second a decent Shakedown and a very good Baby Blue with the obligatory vocal and lyrical mangling.THe 4/5 shows first set contains a good Deep Elem and really good versions of FOTD and Althea,the second offers up a good Bertha,Ship and Wharf Rat.What would qualify these shows as release worthy while so much good music remains in the vault is puzzling.

I think a few heads here might tend to disagree with your opinion that 1970 was an off year for Dark Star.

William Tell along with not just a few others consider the 9/19/70 Star as their favorite all-time rendition. And 2/13/70 is a classic and certainly among the very best Dark Star's ever performed!

Micah and others will tell you that the 6/24/70 Star is among the greatest of all-time, and it's hard to argue against them.

11/8/70 is an excellent Dark Star with it's Main Ten Jam, and the abreviated or cut renditions in Honolulu (1/23/70) and at Pirates World (3/24/70) are excellent as well.

This weeks Taper's Section features a superb Dark Star from 1/2/70 at the Fillmore East that you should definately check out...

nice post Cliff but I think you mistargeted threads. Maybe copy paste it over to the 1970 TDIH thread which I think has the post you were responding to? I see you were responding to two different Jerlouvis posts in different threads.

I don't know who you have to blow to get a case of Grolsch Summer Blonde, but I have been pestering the distributors out here for the past couple summers to no avail. I couldn't even find out if it's still being imported into the U.S. I have not been able to get any Grolsch Amber either. Just have to tough it our with Czechvar, Kronenbourg, Moretti, etc...

Stay cool Larry!

I have to agree. As solid as this show might be (for the period), even an 80's aficionado has to be disapointed with this selection. For starters the sound quality of the available Charlie Miller remaster is excellent, and there is an abundance of music more compelling from the early 1980's...

I concur, I never got too worked up over this show...04-17, 04-18, 04-19, 05-23-1982, 08-07-1982, 09-17-1982, 10-09, 10-10, 12-30, 12-31 are all better shows

yes, the Frost shows would have seemed a better choice. Very nice Shakedown, tho', as noted-- in 4/6.

I used to have a SB cassette of the 2nd set of 4/6. It's not only my birthday, it's a really solid 2nd set with one of my favorite Shakedown's. Check out the call and response jam with Jerry and Brent. The space is also something to check out. I wonder if the CM version has the whole thing. I remember it seeming longer than 9 minutes. Unfortunately, the 1st set playlist is as pedestrian as they come, and so is the 1st set material from the previous night. Where's the Let It Grow, Bird Song, Cassidy, Lazy Lightning>Supplication, Music Never, China>Rider, or even 1/2 Step?

I agree that this release is slightly disappointing only because it does already circulate in CM quality; however, this is an outstanding show and maybe in my top three from the year of 82.

Despite CM's brilliance, some of the Road Trips Releases have been of superior quality i.e. Wall of Sound 74.

I disagree with stratocaster's choice of 4/17. This show puts me to bed; and let's face it, if they did release 10/9 or 10/10 then many would be unhappy because those two circulate in better CM quality than 4/5 and 4/6.

Not really familiar although April '82 hosted some fine shows. Not sure if I need to spend money on this one. I think I have purchased about half the RT releases and not buying this one would mean they batted .500 with me for Vol. 4.

Sounds like it was drawn from the cassette master similar to the Alpine Valley Dick's Pick 08/07/82 the bottom end is both wooly & fluffy.

Historically significant? perhaps, how to say this in a nice politically correct way, only saw the Red Rocks run in 1982 and i think the folks on stage were having more fun than those in the audience and the rain did not help either.

There was a time when I collected everything - I think the Road Trips and utorrent mean those days are gone.
